Assigning a Tab Position:
The Deluxe MP3 Player CB Edition tab position is assigned like any other CB PLUG via the Community Builder Tab management page. Select the Deluxe MP3 Player and choose what tab position and style to use. We suggest using the div no title display.
Changing The Players Default Skin:
To create a new look for the player - use one of Joomlaxtc.com's pre designed skins, or create your own skin with a graphic editing program like Photoshop. Skin Templates are provided with the package and should be uploaded to your images/deluxemp3 folder.
How It Works:
The Deluxe MP3 Player CB Edition adds a custom mp3 player tab position to each users profile page. Users may upload playlists and mp3s via the EDIT tab on their profile page. Depending on the admin settings users can select their own skin, downloadable playlists, rss podcast feed, and 3rd part embedding of their player and playlists.
